PTC5: 21-25 September 2011, Sheffield

23 September 2011 No Comment

Jack Lisowski enjoyed his best tournament run for over a year in reaching the final of PTC5, at Sheffield.

Jack enjoyed three very close wins on Friday. He defeated Andy Hicks 4-2, Andrew Norman 4-3 and Peter Lines 4-3 to set up a last 16 clash with David Gilbert on Sunday morning. Jack won this match 4-3 and then won a fourth consecutive match by the deciding frame against Jamie Burnett in the quarter-final to set up a clash with Andrew Higginson. However he wasn’t able to maintain the momentum and lost 1-4 to Higginson, who was on excellent form all weekend, beating John Higgins in the final 4-1 and only dropping five frames in his seven wins.

Judd Trump started well with a 4-2 win against Marco Fu and a 4-1 victory against Mark King, but was then defeated in round three by former Grove player Li Yan 1-4.

Ronnie O’Sullivan started with a great 4-1 win against world no 2 Mark Williams but then couldn’t keep his good PTC form going, and lost 2-4 to Peter Lines in the next round.

Liu Song and Yu Delu were drawn together in round one with Song overcoming his opponent 4-2, but then was defeated by the ever-improving Ben Woollaston 4-0.

Zhang Anda negotiated his way through the two amateur qualifying rounds once again, beating Alex Taubman 4-2 and Lee Page 4-0, but then lost narrowly against Sam Baird in the first round proper, 3-4.

Chen Zhe beat Alex Davies 4-3 in the first qualifying round but lost to Thailand’s Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon 4-1.
